I saw no comments on the provided data, so I assume, nobody has a clue on this.

To summarise:

Occasionally it happens after rndc reload that the serial in the zone file is bigger than that in served SOA.
In this case, named begins serving stale data.
Probability for this to happen increases with size of the journal file.

I’m using auto-dnssec maintain; inline-signing yes; serial-update-method increment;
The ARM does not state clearly, which is the base of the increment if the zone file changes (file or internal).
In my case, the served serial is based on the zone file and usually bigger than that.

Question: Could the problem arise by incrementing the serial without changing the zone data?
(Occasionally this could happen with my script)

I have upgraded to bind 9.12.1P2 and look forward. . .

Thanks, Axel
